Spoken word poet RAPHAEL BLAKE is all set to release his debut body of work entitled The Undergrad. Having already garnered the support from various BBC Radio stations, the free 18 track mixtape is being released in 3 parts, each containing 6 tracks.
The Undergrad is a body of spoken word poetry over a backdrop of ambient electronic, chilled house and soulful sounds that encompasses the tales of the South Londoner’s life and ideas, capturing his experiences within the 3 years post college. The concept of the The Undergrad project mirrors the journey of a university student that is partitioned into 1st (Ambition), 2nd (Reality) and final years (Sacrifice), each having its own theme revealing Blake’s ambitions, realisations and trials throughout.
The release of part one ‘1st year’ follows the theme of Ambition touching upon autobiographical stories and thoughts – check it out!
